Righteous Jam #1. Cortez the Killer

Righteous Jam #1. Cortez the Killer

I love this song

It makes scenes play in my head-not like a movie-more like memories back flowing into my brain, memories from inspiration instead of experience.

Huh?….What?

I see Montezuma dealing with the conquistadors while they destroy him and his civilization. They wipe a whole people and lifestyle off the face of the earth and then spray a little historical febreze over the land in the name of gold and glory.

I know it was a theme back then.

I know it wasn’t just the Spanish.

But if you write a song like this about almost any other colonial conflict- groups from either side are gonna be all up on you about it.

That would make the song lose its power.

This one just gains strength – this is my favorite version.

An essential Rock song that plays frequently around the cave.

Especially in those times when other genres take me away for a while and I want to remember why I love home so much.

Warren Haynes kills-Dave Matthews brings it back to life and takes it to another level.

Thanks to Neil Young for this song.

Enjoy and cheers from the cave.

      1. If you can find a Warren Haynes version that plays I Canada-please send me a link. This whole legal video in this country but not in this one confuses me.
